[image]Dust storm over the eastern Mediterranean - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
A thick cloud of dust obscured the eastern Mediterranean Sea on February 25, 2006. The dust came from an ongoing dust storm that swept across the Sahara Desert starting on February 23. In this image, taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite, the dust still lingers over Egypt and the Mediterranean. The island of Cyprus is entirely obscured by the thick dust, with the exception of the Troodos Mountains of western Cyprus...

[image]Smoke across the eastern Mediterranean Sea - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Underneath a thin veil of smoke, Egypt’s Nile River delta glows with varied verdant shades, testimony to its year-long growing season. Up to three crops can be grown at a time on the country’s scarce farmland, which receives enriching silt deposits from annual Nile flooding. Nearly half of Egypt’s population is involved in raising the principle crops of cotton, rice, corn, and wheat. The smoke in this image is likely to have come from agricultural fires...
